“It was intensely gratifying to play ‘All Comes Crashing’ live on the Doomscroller tour and see how the audience responded,” says Emily Haines. “I know the lyrics are morbid on the surface, but when the band plays it, the energy in the room lifts and everyone who wasn’t already dancing suddenly is, and it feels like we’re all suspended there in the disappearing present moment. It’s such a high and I wanted to try to capture it in a dance remix of the song. I did some digging and was lucky enough to get the famously reclusive CVCHE on board. They have this insane unreleased electronic album, I got a test pressing of it on vinyl and am now obsessed. I worked with Justin Broadbent on a visualizer ‘remix’ video too, and I’m just really happy we get to release this right now as a bouncy sendoff to 2022.”
“All Comes Crashing” in its original Formentera iteration has been streamed over 11 million times. Formentera reached the #1 position on the Alternative, Current Digital, Top Sales and Top Current Album Charts. It hit #3 on the Billboard Canadian Album Chart, and #4 on the Independent Album Chart in the U.S. just following its release in July.
